It definitely is a good development. But both finance and defence are HUGE ministries. So I wonder, as to how long the system would work like this? Soon a defence minister will have to be appointed, no doubt.

No NO NO NO NO and NO !!. Running the Finance Ministry is a Job that requires a full time capable, technically qualified minister. Running (efficiently) the Defence Ministry ALSO is a full time Job that requires a capable technically qualified Defence minister. If True, giving Arun Jaitley Finance and "additional charge of def minister" means that he will devote his time and energy towards finance and "handle" Def Min "on the side". Which means leave the Def Min to the grossly CORRUPT AND UNPROFESSIONAL IAS, MOD bureaucrats. Famously known as "BABUs". What does that mean ? 1. We will… Read more »

Jaitley wearing two hats sounds like the perfect impetus to further integrate officerstaff into MoD, a Chief of Integrated Defense Staff, etc. Tight synergy between Finance and Defense is exactly what is needed to effectively put forward new programs, both in equipment and in organization and personnel issues, allowing big pictures synergies and savings to be pursued with full understanding and cooperation of Finance, rather than narrow minded disagreement. That probably is not an ideal permanent set-up, but as a transition measure, why not?

It's about time. There are too many things lagging – the MMRCA project, towed sonar acquisition, etc.

This might make the process much more efficient. And if we could keep the process from being subverted, it would set an example for the rest of the nation.

More Importantly, I hope local defence manufacturing is given an impetus, Even if it means 100% FDI in defence.

Its time for a person who knows the Bolts and Nuts of Defence, So my choice would be Rtd Gen V.K.Singh. A person who served his country and a true man against corruption. Let Modiji can take a good call on this..
